How to check what is a SAP program triggered by?


We have a syntax_error in a program and would like to cancel this program from running because it throws over 1000 dumps everyday.

However, we have difficulties in finding what is actually triggering the program. I verified transaction /nSM37 and there are no jobs failing along with it.

Any help is welcome

    If dump is there then go to ST22 Tcode there you can find active calls/events section which will give you call stack.

    Alexandru Nicolae Necula,

    Finding the source of the dump is facilitated by t-code ST22. Reach out to ST22, in selection screen you will have different parameters through which you can filter your search. Provide the necessary inputs and execute. You will be listed with all error lines. Double click on any single line, you will be navigated further with details of the error. As you scroll down you will have a sign similar to this ">>>>>". This is the exact code line that is causing you the error. Now double click that line you will be lead to the program editor screen. From there you can easily find the program name.

    Below link is for your reference, which explains in detail on a ST22 dump.
